I don't think it is possible to type M-A- characters on most
keyboards.  How would you do it?

I don't know of other environments than Sun and COTS PC's.
On the PC's I run there is _always_ a Windows-key on the
left-hand side of the keyboard between Ctrl and Alt. This key
in XFree86 is mapped to Alt, whereas the actual Alt is mapped
to Meta (or if it is the other way around).

I'm not suggesting this is the best solution, but it actually
works - and might be suitable for us that want to see Emacs
as a useful environment for both documenting (LaTeX/TeXinfo/RTF)
and programming (M-g => goto-line). I know I do.
